Today we learned about the Christian celebration of ‘Christingle’. We learned what each of the parts represent;
- The candle for the light of Jesus
- The orange for the world
- The red ribbon represents the blood of Jesus
- The four cocktail sticks are the four seasons and the compass points
- The sweets and dried fruit represent the fruits of the world
The children very carefully wrote instructions, using numbers to sequence them and time connectives to ensure clarity of the order, and then followed their instructions to make the Christingle.
